The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick unites the sick person to the passion of Christ; gives strength, peace, and courage to endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of illness or old age; may offer the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the salvation of the sick person’s soul; and prepares one for passing over to eternal life.
If you are seriously or chronically ill, or preparing to have major surgery, please arrange to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Either call the Parish Office, (904) 777-3168, or request this sacrament from a priest after any Mass. When a parishioner is hospitalized or homebound, please advise the Pastor, or call the Parish Office at any time, day or night, to arrange visitation. Mary, Queen of Heaven offers Anointing of the Sick Masses during the Lenten and Advent Seasons.
